Wedding Dress Trends 2014
There are lots of trends to look out for in 2014. One of the biggest and a personal favourite are elegant backs which create a dramatic statement, whether you choose a lace back, open back, low back or a heavily detailed back these details will have dramatic impact when a bride makes her grand entrance on her wedding day.
Lace is still proving a popular trend adorned with embellishments such as crystals. Look out for embellished laces and crystal belts. These accessories are proving popular and are a great way to enhance a simple gown or allow you to transform your gown from day to night, a great way to add a bit of sparkle for your evening reception.
High necklines proved a popular trend in 2013 and are set to be even bigger in 2014, look out for high necklines in sheer and lace. Be careful when choosing your jewellery to make sure it proportionally matches the style and neckline of the dress.
Vintage is still a massive trend that looks set to continue into 2014, from the trend-setting twenties to the flirty fifties, find the bygone era that suits your shape and style. Pick time inspired designs with lace, silk and elegant embellishments.
Red carpet glamour is great for the modern bride wanting a dress fit for the silver screen. This trend combines glorious satins, sequins and feature waists. Think of luxurious fabrics with exquisite beading to add sparkle and create a real showstopper.
Boho style is ethereal with soft and understated silhouettes, it’s still a look that many brides want to achieve on the big day. For a quirky bride that wants something unique many British designers have led the way with the romantic boho trend giving brides plenty of inspiration. A floral inspired headband or crown will compliment any boho inspired gown.
Shorter dresses are becoming more and more popular with brides and this trend is set to continue in 2014 as many designers have featured short hemlines in their 2014 collections. In particular the 1950’s silhouette and the shift dress are proving popular shapes for the shorter dress.
There are lots of great trends this year to look out for. Having a bespoke gown allows a bride to choose the trends she likes, that suit her and reflect her wedding day. Whether you buy an off the peg gown or have the perfect bespoke dress created for you, choosing your wedding gown should be a treasured memory that lasts a lifetime. “You can’t use up creativity.
